UWEC Transfer Credit Wizard Tutorial

UW-Eau Claire's new Transfer Credit Wizard is a handy tool for transfer students. If you plan to transfer colleges, you can find classes at your current college and see if they will transfer to UW-Eau Claire. If so, the Transfer Credit Wizard will specify the transfer equivalent for that course.

This page the following steps of using the Transfer Credit Wizard:

Searching for an Institution


Now you need to find the institution from which you are planning to transfer to UW-Eau Claire.

  1.  Choose a country from the pull-down menu.

  2. Choose a state and click search. This will list all of the institutions in that state
    OR
    Type the name of the institution in the College/University search box and click Search.

    Note: Abbreviations will not be accepted (i.e. for CVTC, type "Chippewa Valley Technical College"). However, you can type in a portion of the name to view results (i.e. "southwest" brings up all institutions that include "southwest" in their title).

Search by Course Number and/or Course Subject


Now you can search for a specific course or subject.

  1. In the Subject and Course Number search box that appears, you may type in:
    1. A course subject and number (i.e. Engl 408) to display only one result.
    2. A subject (i.e. Engl) to display all courses that fall into that subject.
    3. A course number (i.e. 408) to display courses in any subject that have that number.


    Note: Some technical schools use course numbers only to identify courses (i.e. 809198 Intro to Psyc at CVTC is only listed as 809198 with no course subject). At UW-Eau Claire, we only use the last 6 digits of the course number for technical colleges; sometimes students unnecessarily list 10 or 20 digits.

  2. Note: Institutions abbreviate course subjects differently (i.e. UW-Colleges use MAT for math, while other institutions may abbreviate this differently).

  3. Click Search to continue. From this page you can also start the process over or choose a different institution.

Course Equivalency List


When viewing the course equivalency list, the left side lists the institution's course and the right side lists UW-Eau Claire's equivalent course.

Course List

If you searched for an entire subject you will see all the courses offered in that subject and the UW-EC transfer equivalent.

  • Some courses may transfer as more than one equivalency to UW-Eau Claire. Some courses require you to take a sequence of two courses to receive credit for one equivalent course at UW-Eau Claire. These unique course situations are typically listed as groups at the bottom of the subject list.

  • Courses may not be in numerical order.

Note: If you are looking at a very large list of courses, it may be difficult to find the course you are looking for. To simplify this process, hit Ctrl +F (Find) on your keyboard. A bar will appear at the top of the screen. Type your course number in the search box next to the word Find.
